Peripheral vascular disease is the medical name given to a group of problems that causes poor circulation to the feet and legs. The most common cause of this is hardening of the arteries in which there is a gradual thickening and hardening of the walls of the arteries (the blood vessels that bring blood to the extremities from the heart).
Diabetes is the most common cause of peripheral vascular disease, but lack of physical activity, smoking, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol are also causes. Poor circulation can be treated by your doctor in a number of ways: controlling blood sugar level or addressing other underlying causes, medication to prevent blood clotting, and surgical correction.
